LUFC Warnock contemplated leaving Leeds

LUFC Warnock contemplated leaving Leeds

Leeds United boss Neil Warnock admits he contemplated leaving Leeds this summer after being frustrated in the early weeks of the summer.

Warnock was hoping to build his squad for the 2012/13 season sooner rather than later and after making just one signing, Jason Pearce from Portsmouth in May. Warnock then lost out on Portsmouth teammate Joel Ward.

Ward joined Palace after it was reported that Leeds could not afford the cash payment up front for the player, much to the frustration of Warnock.

Speaking in the Yorkshire Evening Post, Warnock said, "I was disappointed to lose Ward to Palace earlier on in the summer; in fact at that stage I`m not sure I was going to be here

"There were temptations and I think it might have been easier to take an offer elsewhere than stay here.

"My son James lives here and he`s the one that over this summer - when it would have been easier to leave - who has pleaded with me to give it a go.

"Because he knows how desperate I am to get another promotion."



Leeds have added three players to the squad since, with Adam Drury (Norwich), Paul Green (Derby) and Paddy Kenny (QPR) all signing for the club.
